The 2013 J&B Met is set to attract more than 50 000 people to the picturesque setting of Kenilworth Racecourse as Cape Town’s most prestigious horse racing event is “Made to Fly.”

Visitors to the J&B Met this February are encouraged to accentuate their fly personalities with the 2013 J&B Met theme of ‘Made to Fly’.  It’s a call on supporters to break the rules and transcend fashion and style to new heights in over the top, groundbreaking, outfits.

So expect the Kenilworth Racecourse to be transformed into a tapestry of colour and fashion as guests compete for the title of J&B Most Elegant Couple. This hugely popular competition will see judges carefully selecting 16 finalists for the chance of winning R5000 in his and hers gift vouchers as well as a range of fashion prizes, holidays and much more.

The J&B Met was originally known in 1883 as the Metropolitan Mile and while the race had a chequered existence in the early 1900’s, it was firmly established as one of the “big three” races in the country by the 1960’s. It wasn’t until J&B stepped in as sponsor in 1978 though, that the J&B Met as we know it today was born.

The J&B Met will now celebrate its 36th anniversary as the country’s longest standing sports sponsorship on 2 February 2013 at the Kenilworth Racecourse in Cape Town. Tickets for this premier social event will cost R185 and are available through iTickets.

A contribution from ticket sales will also be going towards funding the Kenilworth Conservation Area, an internationally renowned, pristine tract of Cape Fynbos which includes a number of protected species of both fauna and flora.

The Taj Cape Town provides luxury accommodation in Cape Town and will provide transport in one of the hotel’s luxury vehicle for any guest wishing to attend the J&B Met, as well as any other Cape Town events.
